Corero Introduces 100gbps DDoS Mitigation Solution

By Paula Bernier February 17, 2017

Security company Corero Networks has expanded its SmartWall distributed denial of service prevention solution with support for 100 gigabit per second Ethernet. The company also this week garnered an award for that solution.

Corero Networks on Monday unveiled the new SmartWall Network Threat Defense 1100 solution. That extends the SmartWall solution to address 100gbps connections.

This new solution does automatic mitigation of volumetric DDoS attacks, delivers comprehensive traffic visibility, offers DDoS attack analytics, provides centralized management and analysis, and is offered either as a physical or a virtual appliance.

Just a day after introducing the SmartWall Network Threat Defense 1100, Corero Networks announced that its SmartWall Threat Defense System appliance was recognized with multiple awards at the 2017 RSA cybersecurity conference this week.

That included being named by Cyber Defense Magazine as a winner in the Best Product in Network Security category. Meanwhile, the 2017 InfoSecurity Product Guide Awards selected Corero Networks as a gold winner in both the Best Security Hardware Product, and Security Products and Solutions for Telecommunications categories, and as a silver winner in the Most Innovative Security (Hardware) of the Year arena.

Corero Networks says that DDoS attack frequency is increasing. Online gaming and gambling businesses are the most susceptible to such attacks, it adds.

In addition to Corero Networks, some of the other companies offering DDoS mitigation solutions are Akamai, Arbor, F5, Neustar, Nexusguard, Radware, and Verisign.

The global DDoS prevention market is poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22 percent between 2016 and 2019, Technavio said in March.

“An increasing number of SMEs, particularly in the manufacturing, retail, and banking sectors, are adopting cloud-based DDoS prevention solutions to protect their sensitive data,” said Technavio analyst Amrita Choudhury. “As SMEs lack the requisite skills and resources needed for deploying, integrating, and managing security infrastructure, vendors are leveraging the immense potential of this market by launching new several new products.”
